{Pet Photography} My Little Helper

Shelby helped me try out my new studio set-up. She really is such a great dog. Generally, she is very well behaved and listens well. Although, that hasn't always been the case. I've had to work with her a lot. She was kind of a terror when she was a puppy. If she doesn't like doing something, then we work around it. I never make her sit for a photo. There are times when she's not too thrilled with me in the very beginning, but once we get going she actually gets into it and really enjoys it. I also use lots of positive reinforcement and treats so that helps too!

Fun with directional light

Sitting pretty

What...? Doesn't most dogs have their own winter scarf?


What's up?
